Storyline

When drug dealer Mickey mysteriously collapses while negotiating a sale, his partner-in-crime, Eddie, accompanies him to Princeton Plainsboro for treatment. But with a major deal pending, Mickey is not forthcoming with the necessary personal information the team needs to treat him. As Mickey's condition worsens, the team resorts to old-fashioned detective work to solve the case. Meanwhile, House and Wilson compete for the affection of a new neighbor, and Chase, Thirteen and Taub attempt to play a practical joke on Foreman. Written by FOX Publicity

Trivia

When House meets with Eddie (Nick Chinlund) in private, he makes a reference to Jack Bauer; the main character of the television series "24." Nick Chinlund acted in the 7th season of 24 as the character "Masters", who gets killed by Jack. See more »

Goofs

House picks up covert listening device (a bug) hidden under hospitalized drug dealer's body (who's actually an undercover cop), which is actually a pushbutton and not a bug. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: The receiver doesn't respond to manual stimulation. Maybe if you took off your shirt.
Thirteen - Dr. Hadley: Actually, I restorted to something more exotic. I call it "reading the instructions." Turns out if you screw the antennae into the wrong sockets, it doesn't actually work.

Where are the writers?
13 January 2010 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

A movie can stand on many things beyond writing and they usually have a bigger scope and a more ample world, but on the confines of a hospital a TV show requires extremely good writing. That's what makes good television and that's what made house great for 3 seasons.

With the team change on season 4 it seems the ability to blend character development with the medical cases was reduced, but there were still very strong episodes.

Now, with the nice version of house and uncharacteristic cases that really don't stand out, this show is beginning to display serious writing problems. There is still some wit, but mostly in the dynamic duo of House\Wilson; every other dynamic is just moving about, completely without north or proper placement.

This episode makes a strong case towards the above and it really is a shame, because what was once one of the best shows on television is looking old and unoriginal. It seems to be carrying to much baggage and being dragged down by it.

Hire better writers or put it to sleep.
